Yummy! I use the leftovers for veg beef barley soup since it's just mom and myself, she loves it.

I think there are lower sodium versions of homemade mixes on Just A Pinch, but then that nullifies the ease of preparation of this dish. It's so nice to be able to throw everything quickly into a crock pot without doing a lot of prep work, especially if you're having unexpected company.
Health food stores may carry lower sodium versions of seasoning mixes.

Good point Sue, the packaged mixes are high in sodium.

Had someone ask if there was a lower sodium version on facebook.
If you could find a reduced sodium version that would work.

We don't have sodium restrictions so am not concerned with that.
Just wondering if anyone knows if there are lower sodium versions of the mixes out there.

I got this recipe from a friend on Facebook, and thought I would try it. It was very good, although the gravy needed thickening up.
I'm a bit concerned about the sodium content in the ingredients, so it's not something I would make too often. But I saved some of the stock (it made quite a bit) for use in other things. Just have to remember not to add salt when using that stock.

I usually add 2 cups of liquid, 1 of them being red wine or beer. My gang LOVES their gravy and want lots of it.
